Just to let people know that I will be leaving the UK on the 8th November and travelling to 'the Malay Archipelago' (rather more rapidly than Wallace did!), as I have been asked to be a keynote speaker at the Wallace conference in Wangi-Wangi Island in Indonesia (see http://wallacefund.info/wallace-conference-beautiful-wakatobi-islands-indonesia). The conference runs from the 10th to the 13th November and after that I will take a holiday (I need one!!), before giving other lectures on Wallace in Singapore and possibly Malaysia. I will be back in the UK on the 14th December. If you need anything from me (e.g. Wallace related images which I have been supplying to numerous exhibitions and other events worldwide) please bear in mind that I will be very busy preparing for the trip. I also have to give three talks before I depart (at the Royal Society's Wallace Conference, the Natural History Museum' Wallace Conference and Oxford University's Wallace Day) and am heavily involved in the anniversary events at the Museum on the 7th November - the anniversary of Wallace's death (not least the donation that day by the Wallace Fund of the bronze statue of Wallace which will be unveiled by David Attenborough). Finally note that it is likely that I will be out of email contact during much of my trip (hurrah!).
